Criterion Plus: Criterion adds films from Louis Malle, more to Hulu Plus

Now this is how you go into the weekend.

Just a few days after adding a handful of films to their Hulu Plus page, The Criterion Collection has gone ahead and continued bringing more films to the masses, this time, with a much different feel. No John Wayne, John Ford, or Hitchcock found here. Just one of the more varied sextets around.

The biggest additions here are the Louis Malle film THE LOVERS and the Roberto Rossellini picture, PAISAN. Malle has seen a resurgence as of late, with this week’s release of ZAZIE DANS LE METRO and BLACK MOON, so it should come as no shock that Criterion is looking to keep his name in the headlines. PAISAN is an absolute masterpiece from Rossellini, a director that this generation may not be all that knowing of.

And then there are additions like Hajime Sato’s amazingly titled GOKE, BODY SNATCHER FROM HELL, Seijun Suzuki’s amazing YOUTH OF THE BEAST, and both YOTSUYA KAIDAN, PART 1 and Jacques Becker’s CASQUE D’OR. Simply put, it’s yet another great set of additions to what is easily the best collection of stream-able films around.
